Default any idea where i can source a newer buick stereo?

so now that i moved down to Tennessee i have no use for my $150 stereo anymore. (hd tuning) and i dont wanna go back to the stone age (1999 stereo) either. but i also want the factory look. so my compromise is that i want the same *looking* factory stereo, but in the newer buicks, im not sure of years but before 2006, they had my stereo but with the id3 feature, where you can see what you're listening to. any tips on where i can find one? i checked ebay but i couldnt find one not even a picture. i know they did this on some buicks because i was inside one that had it. theyve been doing it for the base model cavilers since like 02, i dont understand why im having trouble finding the buick version lol.

thanks alot all

id also be open to using the newer 07+ stereos but i know for a fact the car ones are too big. i need one that will fit in a standard double din...haven't had the opportunity to measure the truck ones

the newer ones have that security stuff you would have to fool with. that one guy on here did it to his TA but it sounded not worth the hassle. he had to get the bcm and some wireing of the car that the radio came from and splice it in.

My car has the theftlock thing on the radio disabled. You can get the "monsoon" radios out of the higher end audio package in the Buicks for around $100 I think.
